Holiday In Koh Samui

Koh Samui, pronounced Co-Sam-We, is one of Thailand’s biggest islands. Where is it? It’s in the Gulf of Thailand, off the coast of Surat Thani, and it’s a slightly more secluded paradise than some of the other major Thailand destinations. So snag one of our Koh Samui holiday deals and get ready for an adventure inside a parallel universe.

Things to Do in Koh Samui

Wow! Look around. It’s hard to imagine being in a place prettier than this…until you go to Ang Thong National Marine Park and your mind is blown once again. The park consists of 42 island in the middle of the Gulf of Thailand, where limestone cliffs, mangrove swamps, hidden lakes and pristine coral reefs all come together to create a perfect day trip destination. If you’d like to stay overnight, there’s bungalows and tents available to rent so you can experience Koh Samui holidays even further off the beaten path.

When you get back from Ang Thong, check out the Samui Aquarium and Tiger Zoo for a special animal experience. Get an up-close-and-personal look into the local marine life, watch the entertaining sea lion show and bottle feed a baby tiger. If you really want a thrill, get a picture of yourself and a fully-grown tiger—that snap will no doubt find space on your refrigerator. We regret to inform you that no, baby tiger adoption isn’t included in our Thailand holiday packages.

Shopping, Dining & Nightlife

You’re on holiday—you deserve to treat yourself! The Central Festival Samui will serve up all sorts of cultural treasures for you to drop bahts on. There’s everything from a large sporting goods store to small boutiques selling traditional pha nungs. You should also make your way down the Chaweng Walking Street. If you can’t find what you’re looking for down this dazzling avenue, you might as well just stay in the hotel you got through our Koh Samui deals.

When hunger calls you, answer it at one of the delicious restaurants in Chaweng Beach. You can sit down for a luxurious seaside meal at a traditional restaurant or eat more simply from one of the food carts lining the street. The Thai pancakes will fill even the coldest of hearts with overwhelming joy. If you really want to get your hands dirty with the local cooking and eating customs, take a cooking class and learn just how many chillies you should really add to your pad Thai.

When you’re full of food but hungry for late night fun, stay in the Chaweng Beach area and party your arse off. There’s mellow bars with local musicians, all night disco clubs and some establishments featuring cabaret shows where the performers will leave you scratching your head. For a change of scenery, book something from lastminute.com.au Koh Samui car hire options and head over to Lamai Beach for more of the same shenanigans.

What’s Next

We can feel how restless you are through the computer. It’s time for you to get up and go. Like, now.
